Corsair Force MP600 M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express Gen 4.0 x4 NVMe 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F1000GBMP600

Pros: I've had this for about 2 weeks. Just plug into M.2 slot and play. Super fast. Win 10 loads in 6 seconds from MB boot. Incredible. Full cycle on restart about 30 seconds. Runs reasonably cool. Plenty of heat sink to keep it running fast. Everything about this is fast. Opera browser loads in about 1 - 2 seconds. YouTube videos start instantly. Even when I just click through them. Games don't lag. Good quality. Some may think it a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. It was worth it for performance.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would recommend this for someone who wants a faster boot or data transfer.

Most Critical Review

Very slow

Seagate 5TB Backup Plus Portable Drive USB 3.0 Model STHP5000400 Black

Pros: Holds a lot of data. Works OK if you only want to transfer data only. I wanted to use this for playback on videos and Mp3. It is steady.

Cons: Found out that It won't play back mp3. Very jumpy and scratchy. Videos of any quality won't play back well. Data transfer is too slow for that. Data transfer rate is about 13MB. For newer technology I would have expected a higher rate of transfer. For GB transfers get them started and walk away. It's going to take a while.

Overall Review: If you want something just for data transfer and don't mind spending time on it. This may work for you. Over all I wouldn't repurchase. If doesn't work for me.

Great so far

notably sped up my AM3 computer.

AMD FX 6300 AM3+ 3.5GHz/8MB/95W Six Core CPU processor
AMD FX 6300 AM3+ 3.5GHz/8MB/95W Six Core CPU processor

Pros: When I researched comparison from my 4100 to the 6300, it clocked about 75% faster. I didn't know if it would make a difference as I didn't change the hard drive but the difference was noticeable and the computer is more stable and responsive in stress conditions. It came with heat sink paste which was nice even though I has some on hand.

Cons: The processor was used and taken from another computer. When i got it 4 pins opposite the pointer corner were bent. I was doubtful that I would be able to get it to work. But with a magnifying glass and some persistence I was able to straighten them out enough to get them to go into the slot. The salvager did not take care enough to make sure the product was properly removed and packaged.

Overall Review: If you want to similarly speed up a computer this CPU works well but I would consider another supplier.
